challenges and difficulties
George Antheil has a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. George is capable of hard work and persistent labor, but he may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. George Antheil often feels burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of Antheil's which may inhibit him a great deal. George Antheil must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
It may be difficult for George Antheil to play spontaneously or just let his hair down, for he tends to inhibit that side of his by being too self-conscious and concerned with the impression he is making.
George may work very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for he wants very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though he may indeed be outstanding, George Antheil also needs to learn to relax and enjoy himself more.
The conflict between spiritual needs and ideals versus material desires or limitations of the "real world" is one of George's ongoing challenges. It may be hard for George Antheil to sort out his true values, especially when he is enmeshed in the demands of mundane life. Times of retreat, isolation, meditation and prayer could be helpful to Antheil in this regard. Finding inner strength through spirituality and attunement to a higher source is ultimately the answer for him.
His ambition and desire for power could be somewhat out of proportion and Antheil can be quite ruthless in dealing with obstacles and difficulties he may be faced with. George Antheil must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
At some time in his life George Antheil could have a possible tragedy in love relationships that affects him deeply. Some disturbing experiences may rest heavily on his shoulders and as a result, George may turn cold or bitter.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which George Antheil instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction George Antheil needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
It is easy for George Antheil to become distracted from his path by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to him. George Antheil needs to develop single mindedness and focus. Until George directs his attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", he is apt to dabble, scatter his energies in many directions and engage in activities which are entertaining but ultimately neither fruitful nor enriching.
Having an overall vision for his life and aligning his daily activities so that they support rather than detract from Antheil's larger purpose in life, is a significant step toward his personal development.
The arena he is most likely to wrestle with these issues is in playful self-expression, games or sports, and creativity. George Antheil should try to develop any artistic, expressive, creative potentials he feels he possesses, utilizing the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold George Antheil back, or which he is prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
The need to be first all of the time and demonstrate an aggressive or bossy attitude, impatience or irritability; an over-eagerness to use force or violence to gain advantage and the tendency to resort to fighting or using confrontation too quickly.
The following are specific activities that will support George Antheil in his growth. These may or may not feel natural to Antheil, and he may initially resist or feel awkward about them, but they are crucial to his path to wholeness.
George Antheil should be willing to become more of a free thinker, to experiment and change, to loosen his ties to tradition and the known and to allow for new developments. He needs to practice getting involved in an area involving new techniques, rapid changes and innovation. George can be part of the avant-garde promoting such changes - be it in science, music or social relationships. George Antheil has to be willing to be different and perhaps to be considered eccentric or odd.
